Years on the NLS team: 1996-present
Role: I lead the team that creates variables on the NLSY97 and the NLSY79 for researchers to use in their work. I also work in collaboration with others on the design team to review the content of the questionnaire.
I started with CHRR just as the NLSY97 was first going into the field, and have worked to create variables on that cohort since the first round. It has been interesting to watch respondents grow up and change over time.
